Not VR?!?! Come'on guys.... Redout was VR and you nailed it. What the hell.........

Ugh, I tried Redout in VR. Too much motion, too fast. And I say that as someone with 100 hours in E:D VR.

This looks like it would be fine in VR, I'm just not enamored of the shooty arcady gameplay I see in the trailer.

This reminds me so much of a game from years ago that I can't remember the name of. All I remember is it was originally an XBLA release (and it for sure came to Steam, since I have it lol just can't remember it heh) and it was basically an on rails space shooter kinda game. Had a ton of fun with it though. This looks like that game both in looks and gameplay to me. Even the way the ship moves around with the jiggly movement looks like this older game.

As for the VR thing, maybe Redout itself did poorly for them on VR sets and they decided not to go the VR route with this game? I dunno, the genre of game certainly fits VR pretty damn well.
